About The Book

A beautiful, newly-illustrated edition of the original classic

Most 90s kids grew up with the adorable Disney movie Bambi, but did you know it was originally a book? Now the classic 1923 novel about the life of a young deer is getting a new edition filled with beautiful, full-color illustrations!

The original story of young Bambi starts as he begins life in the forest with his mother, cousins, and other furry friends. However, as winter spreads it icy hands over the forest, Bambi’s father, a powerful stag, leaves Bambi and his mother alone to brave the elements and scavenge for food. Bambi also faces the threat of Man, along with Man’s weapons that can hurt and kill any animal.

Though Bambi fears for his life and the well-being of his friends and family, nothing, not even Man, can stop him from growing to become a mighty Prince of the Forest. With the beautiful refurbished text and illustrations, adults and children of all ages can enjoy this new edition of the original Bambi.
